How can I share an album as a slide show and be sure the viewer has interactive controls so they can change to full page images and advance slides manually? I've created and shared two albums -- one has viewer controls, the other only has a change speed control.

Is that from Photoshop.com?

Yes, I set up the albums on Photoshop.Com after buying the new version of Photoshop Elements. Sorry I wasn't clear in my posting. Also, is there any way to set up multiple albums on Photoshop.Com and give several friends a URL where they can access them as slide shows from time to time without having to send each one a link to a specific album via the Photoshop Express Organizer. I had set up a photo album web site using iWeb and Apple's Mobile Me web hosting but they are phasing out this service and I'm wondering if Photoshop.Com can be a replacement of sorts. Thanks.

Are you using the same Slideshow template each time? Different slideshows have different levels of viewer interactivity. If you are, which template are you using? It might be that different behavior is happening in different browsers or different versions of those browsers.

I haven't found different templates. When I finished adding descriptions to photos in an album using Photoshop Express Organizer I clicked on the share icon at the bottom of the page and it gave me the choice of sharing as an album or a slide show and entering an e-mail address and message to another person. I sent e-mails to myself to test what the recipient would receive and one album came out with controls at the bottom of the page, the other came out advancing automatically with only a slider at the top (drop down) to change the slide advance speed.

There are a number of slideshow templates to choose from.

Would you be willing to post the links to the slideshows so I could take a look at what you are seeing. If not, you could just email them to me: bnemecek [AT] adobe [DOT] com.

You can change the slideshow templates while sharing the albums in the following two ways:
1- Click on the share album icon at the bottom of the organizer. A dialog will appear. Select the slideshow button and look for a link with name "change the slideshow theme". Click on it and you would be able to change the template.
2- Click on the slideshow icon at the bottom of the organizer. Select a theme and apply it and then close it. After that click on the share icon again and share it. Also, while closing the slideshow window, you would be presented a share dialog.

About the controls: The cotrols in the template which are availalbe while applying the template, might not be availalbe while viewing in the sharing mode (opened via link). In some templates only time slider would be available and in some, there might be few controls available while viewing.
